The Glitter Fairy Takes a Field Trip to "Glitter Heaven"...

Yesterday I flew the coop and made a pilgrimage to "the source"...no, not Poland Spring, silly...a glitter factory. Yes, I , through an amazing coincidence, met a person ( on a plane ) whose father actually invented modern-day glitter , and a trip to my kind of heaven was planned. Back in the 1930's, when German glass glitter was no longer available because of WWII, a wonderful gentleman invented a way to make glitter here in the good old US. This family-owned company manufactures top-of-the-line glitter that is sold all over the world, as well as sequins and all manner of shiney stuff. The best part is that it is located smack in the middle of a gorgeous farm so I got to see cows with their newborn calves and fat French Geese waddling about. What a wonderful place! It just doesn't get any better than this for a Glitter Fairy! I had sooooooooo much fun and am thrilled to say I finally met someone who loves glitter MORE than I do! Is that even possible???

hello - I am working on a glitter history blog and would like to reference your bit German Glitter. Also you refer to Henry Ruschmann in this blog and I wondered if you could share anything you learned about him?
